You want encryption of the signalling/negotiation or encryption of the 
media traffic or both? I assume both. :)

That doesn't all traffic (which you need to encrypt the Jingle 
signalling exchanges), only message body text.

That doesn't encrypt all traffic either, just message body text.

Correct. That's why we are working on an end-to-end encryption 
technology that encrypts the entire packet. It's called encrypted 
sessions. It should be supported in Gajim (not sure if that code has 
been released yet).
